Holding on to memories

The holidays seemed to go by in a blur --
and when life moves at that pace --
it's hard to slow things down and hold on to the memories we are making.

Here's a few that will stay with me for a very long time:
  • lights shining on the Christmas tree at night
  • children giggling/wiggling with excitement
  • the smell of cinnamon and oranges
  • wrapping gifts and filling stockings
  • watching Papa Bill play 'Santa' with two very efficient 'Helpers'
  • being with the ones I love at this so special time of year
